Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a lime slice or a hot pepper.
Add a little zing to your viewing party and celebrate National Margarita Day at the same time by serving your guests the Roasted Jalapeño Margarita!!! In a shaker, mix equal parts Powell & Mahoney Roasted Jalapeno Margarita mixer and 100% blue agave blanco tequila. Shake and strain over ice into a Margarita or Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
You don’t have to stop there either—give these wonderful recipes a try and your party is sure to win awards of its own.
Gold Bar Punch (serves 10)!
Mix together 1 bottle VSOP Cognac, 1 bottle Powell & Mahoney Lemon Sour mixer, ½ bottle Powell & Mahoney Ginger mixer, 1 cup fresh pineapple juice and 1 cup cold water. Chill for several hours before serving. When ready to serve, pour into a large punch bowl over the gold bar ice block. Top with 1 bottle chilled Champagne and stir. Add orange slice. To make the gold bar ice, fill a loaf baking pan with boiling water (this will ensure clear ice). Add edible gold flakes to the pan and stir. Place in freezer overnight. Prior to serving, run the outside of the pan under hot water to release the ice block.
You can also warm up with a Hot Spiced Ginger Cider. Bring 8 oz. apple cider and 4 oz. bourbon to a simmer in a small saucepan. Stir in 3 oz. Powell & Mahoney Ginger mixer and add lemon juice to taste. Divide 4 cherries between 2 glasses or mugs and pour in cider combination. Add a few Luxardo cherries to finish. Good for a group or a cozy twosome.
